Reverse Interview -- Ask Us!

I had planned on having an interview all set up for us, but that didn't work out. So instead leave your questions for us in the comments and we will answer them. Funny, serious, reading related -- we will answer just about anything! :)

Hrm. Alright ladies. What was the last scene that made you seriously gigglesnort? And what's your biggest quirk in real life?

I don't think I've read any review here with less than 3 star, but have you ever had an author contact you regarding a low rated review here at the TBQ or any other forum?

Good question!

Ooh, yes! I have had a few. Usually ones where I left a rating and/or mini review on my GoodReads account and the author, or sometimes tour host if I was doing a blog tour, has asked me to either change the review, pull it down, or wait to put the review up after a certain date. I've never been attacked, thank goodness.

Also you are right, while we do put 0.5-2.5 stars on the review policy, we've never posted any lower reviews here on the blog. We may talk about a book that didn't work for us, sometimes in great detail, but never an actual review.

Hope that answers your question! :)

Oooh, hard questions! :) Hm . . . the last scene that made me gigglesnort . . . I'd have to say it was from Tracy Wolff's "Shattered". The heroine is a virgin with no clue on what to do (she had cancer all through childhood/teen years, so she was isolated in many ways). Her younger sister decides to give her a few dozen porn websites to use as research. And every website is horrible, not even good porn! One even included a dog, which she quickly exited. And while she's checking them out, the hero knocks on her door. Of course she gets flustered, tries to get rid of the evidence and hide the laptop when he comes in. And of course the pause button on the porno site gets hit by accident and suddenly the fake sounds of sex explode through the room. :)

And biggest quirk . . . wow, I don't even know! Um, not the best example, but all I can think of right now: my hair is so long that when I have it trimmed I must first stand up while the beautician bends to trim the ends. Then I sit in the chair and she STANDS on another chair so that she can pull my hair up straight and trim it into slight layers. It's . . . a sight to behold. Seriously, I live in a small town, so it's 99.9% locals in there at any time, but they still stare when they see this! lol
